Pitt Skips Comic-Con

Jace Lacob reports: Brad Pitt was a no-show at Comic-Con, where his partner Angelina Jolie was expected to be on hand to promote her new action film, Salt, opening tomorrow. Pitt's co-stars in the 3D animated action-comedy Megamind, Will Ferrell (who appeared in costume and blue facepaint), Tina Fey, and Jonah Hill appeared in the cavernous Hall H to kick off this year's convention, alongside a cardboard cutout of Pitt, who was said to be watching his and Jolie's kids. Before lovingly caressing Pitt's likeness, Fey asked the crowd, "Whoever I 'met' last night at the hotel, you left your Admiral Akbar costume in my room."
